ALLL in a day

Well, today I took C for her first knitting class at the LYS.. I know.. I know.. I probably could have taught her.. but to be honest, I don't think I knit the conventional way.. but my own lefty contemporary way.. not exactly American style.. and Val was so patient with C!!. where C now LOVES it!...Anyhow, she's a natural..! After 1 hour, she can cast on, she now knows, garter, stockinette, rev stockinette, and ribbing!!!! OMG.. I learned to knit almost 4 yrs ago, and I think it took me 6 months to get past garter st. Course, I have to spoil my kid, and give a set of bamboo needles and some Malabrigo !!! Me? I learned on plastic needles w/ some acrylic!..


Here's my start on the Morning Train scarf... and I'm off to run some errands in the torrential rain!!! Have a good week all!

Well, I'm sure it's because C had a much better teacher! ;)

That train scarf is awesome. The Cocoon is so soft and pretty; and the color is like jumping into a latte.

I will never forget the day a neighbor came outside to "help" me teach my daughter how to ride a bike - I think he thought I was going to kill her. It's very hard to teach our own kids stuff...
